Replacing head unit in 197

  Red Clio 197
Hi Guys,
New owner here. Desperately want a new stereo in my 2008 197 to allow me to use my Ipod. I'm getting a Pioneer MVH-8200 and looking on other threads it appears I need a fascia from a Megane to ensure no gaps - is this the right fascia?

Also, I have no rear speakers, which appears to be normal on a 197 - I've seen JL Audio Evolution TR525Cxi's recommended, will they fit straight in the rear?

Yes that's the right facia adaptor.

You'll have to check the rears, as if you look at some 13cm speakers they have 4 tabs around the speaker for mounts, and 2 are usually cut/filed off to fit the renaults 2 x mounting holes. The jl's you refer to don't have tabs, but a bigger lip around the whole speaker. You'll have to measure it's size compared to the hole in the rear cards.
